    Might check out Sony's line. I think that's the old Minolta AF mount.

    Not bad cameras either, from what I hear.

    How old? If real old manual stuff, it's a no go. If they're AF, Sony uses the A-mount and all Minolta Maxxum lenses will work, except for certain old Sigma lenses which may not.

    :P

    That being said, I am thinking very very (very) hard about a new body. I've been doing a little side-work and requests for bigger things requiring more time-commitment (and more moola) are starting to trickle in, so my wife and I are talking about formally launching an event photog and portraiture biz (it's either that or start flipping houses...and honestly, I'd rather take pictures). If we decide to dive into this together, I'll need a second pro-level camera body. Because of its high-resolution, a new D3x may end up becoming my primary camera body for that purpose, backed-up by the "old" D3. I've also been thinking very hard about the 85mm f/1.4 and the 105 f/2 with defocus control for portrait lenses. The only other thing I'll need is a real lighting setup and some PocketWizards.

    It's still sort of up in the air right now, and if we decide to do it, the investment won't occur until after the first of the year, as that's when we'll be able to do it without using credit. Not looking to fill up every weekend with photog jobs, but this would be something wife and I could do together to earn a little extra coin.
    If thats the case, let me know if you're willing to part with your D200 body for a good price.... I'll take it off your hands...

    Probably won't be losing the -200. Wife likes using it, and it's a good light body.

    And wow...I can't believe used D200s are still pulling in $700+!!

    I just saw this on Adorama, too:

    Nikon USA-refurbished D3 for about $700 less than a new one!?!? Wow...

    Alright. How? Macro lens? Extension tubes? Mega-crop?

    Tamron 90mm/f2.8 macro. I was thinking about selling it, since I rarely use it, but the ability to take shots like that with minimal effort make me rethink it. I posted a couple more on the LGK Flickr stream.
